Foundation Years

www.foundationyears.org.uk/

 "It is a one stop shop for resources, information and the latest news on the foundation years.  It brings together information from many sources that will help you to support children to develop and flourish."  (Foundation Years)

Findon Children and Family Centre

"We aim to bring together a range of services for children from nought to five years. We are committed to providing a safe, welcoming and supportive environment which is inclusive and accessible to all. Our belief is that the first five years of a child's life are the most important as they lay the foundations for later happiness, emotional wellbeing, health and lifelong learning."

Ofsted - Changes to regulations April 2013 

Ofsted have written to inform us that they are no longer regulating 2 areas of early years care.

1 - The maximum number of children allowed at any one time
2 - Permitting overnight care

Ofsted are not going to regulate these 2 areas anymore as this is adequately covered by the Early Years Foundation Stages 2012  and the General Childcare Register regulations.

This will make no difference to us as we are already permitted to have the maximum number of children allowed under these regulations and we have no plans to change our opening hours.

If you would like to read more about this then please follow the links below to the relevant pages on Ofsted's website.
